Hayley’s Comet is now taking registration for summer camps. Kids aged 6-14 years can join professionally led workshops, acting lessons and dance classes full of fun, high energy and creativity. The perfect activity during the hot months!

Each week is a brand new theme that results in a unique show to perform for family and friends. So your young star can join in for one week or multiple weeks. The show is created with professional instructors who will teach dance, drama and music, combined with creative games to build a show from scratch!

Camps run at James & Alex Dance Studios, Media City 9am-3pm daily. Each camp starts on a Sunday and ends with the performance on Thursday afternoon. The cost of the camp is AED 900 (10% sibling discount). HOWEVER, a special EARLY BIRD promotion means that if you book before 22nd June the camp will cost just AED 800!

Children just need to bring a healthy packed lunch… and themselves!
